Dress- Marquee by Veromoda, Shoes- River Island

I am a monochrome lover but very rarely will I flaunt it without a pop of colour either in the form of my make up or some accessories! But this time, I decided to give the pop a ditch because frankly this dress had enough elements to grab eye balls anyway. When I entered the Veromoda store to check out the two new collections that have been added to the Marquee line this month, this dress instantly caught my attention. Given, that it is slightly out of my comfort zone and I would need to hit up one of the Abs Workout videos on YouTube before wearing this, irrespective, I decided to give this a go! One of the main reason for the attraction was the studded detailing on the sleeves which set it apart from the mundane. The plain top half was contrasted by a floral pattern on the bottom balanced the dress impeccably.

The two collections that have been added to the stores this month include Nocturnal Rendezvous and Hide & Seek. The former includes an interplay of various elements like structured elements on drapery as well as geometric designs combined with floral patterns. These unconventional pieces are occasionally splashed with oxidized beads. The latter is a sensuous dance between lace & satin, paying homage to the demure feminine form. Perfect for the woman who is confident, the collection plays with different tones which lends a sensual frivolity to the attire. One of my favourite pieces from this collection is a pastel green lace midi dress! What do you guys think of this look? Don't forget to check out the new collection here

Jeans, jacket, tee- Gas, Shoes- Steve Madden, Make up- Clinique

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Gas Jeans to be a part of their 30th anniversary celebration campaign and I was super excited to join in along with a few other fellow bloggers. It was a fun shoot at the Tank store which was such a distraction because they had such amazing things at even better prices! We had the Clinique team do our make up for the shoot and we chose our outfits from Gas's new a/w '14 collection. The collection is filled with jackets that make me want to move to a colder place, jeans that fit as if they were custom made and lots of basics with a slight edge. The colour palette is rather winter appropriate; perfect to rock with a red lip!

For my look, I decided to stay true to my style and started by choosing a pair of denims that fit like a dream! I paired it with a grey tee with embellished detailing on the shoulder and this stunning cream moto jacket. Added a pop of colour with these sky high heels which I couldn't help but take home with me later. I am hoping to get hold of this outfit as well on the 13th November! For their 30th anniversary celebration, the Gas website will be free for 30 seconds at 3.30 pm so get ready to grab what you desire! It's a rare opportunity to get hold some fab denims, stunning jackets and much more absolutely free of cost. I am super excited for this digital event and have already shortlisted a few items to add to my cart! Don't forget to log in on the 13th to grab your share.

Jewellery- Azva, Dress- Tnfc, Shoes- Asos, On my lips- Media by Mac and Clinique chubby stick in Grandest grape

This time of the year is super exciting because it's bombarded with festive parties, cocktails and weddings! As exciting as it is, figuring out outfits for all these events is always a task. Which is why I have developed a routine and pre-plan my looks way in advance to avoid the last minute jitters. I start with scouting my favourite websites and stores to start with my base. Depending on the occasion I pick between jumpsuits, maxi skirts, maxi dresses, anarkalis or lehengas! As soon as I came across this gorgeous maxi dress, I instantly knew this was going to be a part of my festive wardrobe.

Once that is out of my way, I then tackle the styling element. Because the dress was very classic and simple, it gave me an opportunity to bring out the masterpieces. I chose this gorgeous gold choker necklace with a stunning pendant. It worked in sync with the neckline of the dress which made it flow in harmony. The burgundy gem on the larger than life rain drop pendant added the perfect touch. The beaded detailing on this Azva choker in this gorgeous 22 karat gold makes it such a magnificent piece. The intricacy of the designs of all the Azva pieces always manage to cast a spell on me. Each piece is crafted so diligently using modern techniques but keeping the traditions intact, which is strikingly evident at every glance. I also chose this stunning cuff to enhance the look. The gems on the cuff matched the ones of the necklace which made it appear correlated. Again the detailing is what blew my mind and I could barely take my eyes off it! I was so happy with the end result that I decided to document this look and ultimately decided to wear it to my best friend's cocktail!

For my make up, I went with a dull gold eye shadow all over the lid and drew on a dramatic wing with my eyeliner to match the opulence of the look. Contoured my cheek bones for a flawless appearance and finished off with a touch of blush on the apples. I matched my lips to the dress which is one of my all time favourite combinations! I decided to go with simple pumps in a similar hue to streamline the look.

We Indians share this eternal love for Gold jewellery which is unlikely to fade in the near future. For us, there is so much more to it than just buying new pieces. It's a process that binds us in this endless tradition. One that we proudly call our own. Azva adds a modish touch to these traditional pieces making them the perfect blend for the modern woman. I can see these pieces surviving for decades in my wardrobe as I enjoy this beautiful journey of womanhood. I cannot wait to flaunt these gems again in yet another chapter of grandeur opulence. Until then hope you guys have a wonderful festive season and wish you all a very Happy Diwali and a prosperous new year!
